Winning Work from i2i – Ashton High

i2i - Inspiring Success - Winning Work - Ashton High

“There were many positive impacts. Improvements in confidence, self esteem and raised expectations are most notable.”

Sharon Asquith

Headteacher, Ashton High Ribbleton Campus

What We Found:

A group of fifteen underachieving pupils, not on target to pass 5 GCSEs A*-C including Maths and English, were identified by staff. Of the fifteen, only six were on target to pass 5 GCSEs A*-C.

These students had few aspirations beyond secondary school and lacked the determination and self-belief to realise their true potential. Some of the group lacked the confidence to talk in front of other pupils and others lacked the motivation to work hard enough to achieve the grades they were capable of.


The students were taken through a three day programme, packed with inspirational content, designed with the specific needs of the group in mind, and delivered by two members of the i2i team.

The group were taken through a series of fascinating and enjoyable exercises using psychological performance theory and then equipped with specific short, medium and long term techniques for positive change and sustained personal development.

Notable Outcomes:

All fifteen of the group achieved 5 A*-C GCSE passes.
Eleven students achieved 5 A*-C grades, including Maths and English.
